A few days ago, a map went public for the SIAF 2016. Sadly it shows that the west part from the base will be closed down not just during the weekend but during the training days as well! We received an email later that confirmed this map, that came from the base:
“the area as per your link will be closed due to security and safety reasons. We regret to let you know that no entry will be granted to this area during the practice and air display.
We advise all spotters and aviation photographers to take into account all closures.
